Haiku: Raiders 7 / Browns 9


Norv and Kerry got
their wish—and so we get coal
and Cleveland the gift.

Brutal ... simply brutal. Scoring 7 points at home to lose to the Browns is beyond X's and O's of game planning, it's about desire. Our boyz don't have it and have let the fans down. If you can't play for the pride of the Nation, or yourself ... play for your bank accounts. Believe me the personnel departments of every team are watching (including Al Davis), efforts like this are going to hurt the free agent contracts and certainly hurt their future prospects of putting on the Silver & Black next year.

The Raiders D played with heart and made a goal line stand, shut down the Browns running attack, and came up with 2 turnovers. This brutal loss is on the offense & Sea Bass who should have dressed up as St. Nick since he gave the Browns a HUGE gift. A very demoralzing L to say the least. It has been a rare sighting to see all 3 phases of the game play well for the Silver and Black.

Agreed. Even though they let the Browns drive on them (including a stupid penalty on a sack) to score the winning FG, bottom line is that the defense gave up nine points. NINE. Where was the offense? Another sad day by Turner & Co.

The "D" played well enough to keep us in the game until the end. They were the only brght spot in a dark day. Sea Bass needs to "be" Santa and deliever the goods.....not 70% ( one of the lowest in the league). Yet another reason not to pick a kicker in the first round, need I say "WASTE". Retrun coverage was as bad as all season......Gave the Browns great field placement. The "O" line did a much better job and gave ( The misfireing) Collins the chance to over and under throw the ball. Running game was great.......Once again stats show we moved the ball better and had it longer but lost.......At home.............Another bad day in a bad season. If we stay with 4-12 we will have the 5th or 6th pick in the Draft.......Lets look forward...........NO KICKERS PLASE!

On the brightside, Matt Leinart may be there in the 6-hole. BTW, anyone know where I can download and Autumn Wind ringtone? Thanks.

Another sad loss.
I dont mind losing so much as a lack of enthusiasm and motivation from the players.
Seems like ther're dialing it in already.

Somebody please tell me why Collins is still starting ?
He gives us a better chance to win ?? Only he never seems to deliver.

Look, I love Al like most Raiders fans but his guy Norv got us into this mess and I expect Al to get us out.

If I'm Al, I try to lure Jimmy Johnson out of retirement with a king's ransom for a salary. Then find a way to somehow grab Bush and Leinart in the '06 draft and pry Favre out of Green Bay. I figure any player on the current roster is expendable as is any '06 draft pick.

Yeah, it's a pie in the sky but it sounds a heck of a lot better than what we currently have.

I have never been of the mindset of a "single" star running back. With so many good RB's out there we can have two. I still think that Turner has "NO" place on the Raiders except water boy. He has Zack and has just started to use him..........Go figure......A two back set??? Turners learning curv is "Way" to long and we connot wait 3more seasons to lose a Super Bowl. New Coach is a must and This will tell the Raider Nation if Al has lost it or not..........The next coach, if a whimp.....or a lion..............This will be huge. The Raiders need to get back on top. Our next season "Must" yeald at least .500 and to do that we need leadership.....A coach with an attitude of winning not Mr, Rodgers kiss Ass Turner. I say to the Nation that both Turner and Collins are bad history. I know this because on the post game show they were ripping both Collins and Turner. They get paid by the Raiders and have been soft stepping this for weeks. Now its on........Al is making it clear they are both GONE!
